Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

Komakino 'you do it to yourself, you do...'

get over my fear of moths (read all 5 entries…)

Now I realise my fear of moths may be a bit irrational, crazy even, but when I told my work colleague Andy of this said fear, it was not an invitation for him to take matters into his own hands, find a dead moth on the floor and leave it on my desk in order to help me “face” my fears.

From the girl who feels sick even looking at a photo of a moth you can imagine I was not impressed, not at all. He had even thoughtfully left it belly up on my mouse…

Que silent scream and then I ran away… yes… from a dead moth!


Really can it get any worse?!

Well… apparently yes…

I wouldn’t actually go back to my desk until Pete had put said moth in the bin, in a piece of paper so that It couldn’t get out

Im not sure if I thought it was going to reanimate and attack me, oh lord… shudders

I don’t think I was thinking all that rationally to be honest


mooniebutt is a Mommy!

And said mouse

is now sterilized?

Komakino 'you do it to yourself, you do...'

Well it took me a good 5 minutes to actually touch the mouse… I did demand at one point a Michael Jackson esc glove… only one for my right hand so I didn’t have to touch where it was… but in the end I just got an antiseptic wipe from the first aid box and used that

mooniebutt is a Mommy!

Yes, she could subtly retaliate,

or she could just go and kick the bastard in the nuts.

ha ha

That’s good and evil!

Komakino 'you do it to yourself, you do...'


That is rather good, but as hes a temp and leaving soon il have to figure another way to get back at him! lol!


PurpleHeather has moved to as Purpleheather - come and find me there :)

Perfectly rational fear

I too really really don’t like moths but it’s when they are alive and flying. I have a story but you don’t need to hear it.

I have no problems with any other flying beastie except ones that bite me (if they can bite they bite me mercilessly and leave all others in the room alone)

Komakino has gotten 5 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
